This fantastic pairing continues the growth of both CrewPass and Meridian°, as they continue to make waves in the yachting industry.

“As the leading job platform for yacht crew worldwide, Meridian° recognizes the importance of conducting background checks,” said John Lee, Director of Operations for Meridian°. “We believe it is one of the most important steps vessels can take to ensure the safety and security of the owners, guests, and fellow crew. As such, Meridian° stands fully in support of CrewPass and its mission.

A ‘first of it kind’ integration in yachting recruitment

What makes this integration with Meridian° so exciting is that this is a first in the industry. Managing Director of CrewPass, Conrad Empson, commented on this new partnership.

We have seen a dramatic increase in the requirement for background checks since our launch. So our Partnership with Meridian gives employers an entirely new way to recruit crew. Our mission for CrewPass has always been to provide the best security when it comes to crew employment. We highly value the safety of yacht crews and their clients. Our first-of-its-kind integration with Meridian gives employers instant knowledge that all crew has been vetted using our digital employment passport systems.”

CrewPass hopes this will set a new standard in the yachting industry. Awareness around employment vetting continues to grow with each passing year. The services that CrewPass offer include criminal background checks, ID verification and certification validity of individuals. This will result in an approved certification lasting two years. CrewPass hopes to continue its growth within the yachting employment industry. New integrations and partnership opportunities are being explored as the year progresses.

The integration is now live for Meridian° users. Visit Meridian’s website for job listings. For more information about CrewPass or to sign up, click here.
